We spend a ton of time building our personal brand. We write blog posts and record our podcasts. We post on Instagram and upload to YouTube. We refine our speaking website, work on that book, participate in Clubhouse, and comment on LinkedIn. We share our expertise and insight freely. It turns out that all of that hard work might get you one gig. Unfortunately, none of those things will guarantee you the next gig. What if you become a referable speaker? It's the fastest, most practical way to increase your fee and generate more leads. Instead of investing in marketing yourself as a great speaker, invest in your speech. Because, unless you're famous, event organizers don't buy you (or your personal brand.) They buy the speech, then your idea, then you―in that order. In this groundbreaking book, you'll learn precisely how event organizers select their keynote speakers, what you can do to win them over, and even how to set your fee. You'll see exactly how 81 speakers built sustainable speaking revenues by evaluating the three F+E+E Factors and 10 sub-factors. Factors that turn novice presenters into transformational keynote speakers. Evaluate how to make the most meaningful impact through 58 professional speaker case studies based on 6 years of industry data. See how elegantly simple it is to make the leap from breakout rooms to the keynote stage. You'll leave with an entirely new, eye-opening, and refreshing understanding of how the speaking business really works and how you can make an impact fast. Do you have what it takes to become a referable speaker? You do. Go ahead, take a look inside!
